The survey of 1500 people revealed that the “condition” is widely misunderstood. The article warned that myths about “schizophrenia” are dangerous. The main findings were: • 50% of people think that schizophrenia means you have a ‘split’ personality • 26% believe that schizophrenia makes you violent • 23% incorrectly think that someone with schizophrenia needs to be monitored by professionals at all times • 45% of the general public thought the illness much less common than the one in 100 people that have schizophrenia 1500 people are not indicative of the “general public”. This is a poor study. Bad science. And was it replicated? I expect no. More bad science. I like this bit: “• 23% incorrectly think that someone with schizophrenia needs to be monitored by professionals at all times” –“. ie, one person they have in their minds. Not “everyone”.Someone. Someone perhaps such as “Nicholas Salvador AKA “Fat Nick” needs to be monitored at all times. So if the 23% have him in their minds, then they’d be right 100% of the time. Here’s another one. “• 45% of the general public thought the illness much less common than the one in 100 people that have schizophrenia”. One in hundred people do not have schizophrenia. In the UK, if that was correct, then about half a million would have schizophrenia. Yet they don’t. About 120,000 do. The figure of 1 in 100 is a very loose estimate of lifetime rates of schizophrenia, not how many people are currently suffering under the diagnosis. So the 45% of people in the survey were actually correct. And so on and so forth.
